Excerpt: Zombie Apocalypse: Never Die Alone should be the perfect game for me. I absolutely love twin-stick shooters and zombies, even while saturating the gamescape, are still ridiculously enjoyable to mow down.
Pros: + Good variety of zombies, + Good explosions
Cons: Some of the humor works, Suicidal AI, Infuriating voice acting, Unlikeable characters
Conclusion: Whether you’re trying to snag a coveted spot on the boards or are just in it for the sheer satisfaction of piling the infected corpses high, you’ll appreciate Zombie Apocalypse ’s solid controls and sharp presentation. The former will be familiar to any dual-joystick jockeys who have blasted their way through Robotron or Smash TV . And the latter is an impressive mix of well-detailed environments, over-the-top gore and eerie audio work.
Excerpt: The lack of variation unfortunately keeps Zombie Apocalypse from being the great game that it could have been. It feels extremely repetitive and doesn’t offer anything that makes you want to replay it again. Otherwise, it isn’t all terrible.
Pros: Plenty of zombies. Visual quality is nice. Ease of use.
Cons: Repetitive. Can get a little boring. No real objective or plot.
Conclusion: Back in 2009, Zombie Apocalypse was released, a fun twin-stick shooter which saw you wading through hordes of the undead from a top down perspective. With some co-op capability it was a passable distraction mired by flaws and an overall lack of variety. Never Die Alone tries to fix all this.
